Besides avoiding touching your face, eyes, mouth, nose and ears with dirty hands, and besides washing your hands frequently for 20 seconds or more with hot water and good anti-bacterial soap OR sanitizing with alcohol-based sanitizer in the absence of soap and water, one other crucial way to keep yourself healthy year round is to ensure that you stay nourished.

Oftentimes, for a plethora of reasons, people wonder what fruits to eat to help boost the immune system. While many experts have different opinions, most of them agree that one beneficial nutrient that helps most people’s immune system is Vitamin C.

How To Help Restaurants Survive The Coronavirus Crisis

How Can You Help Restaurants Survive The Coronavirus Crisis?

At this point, really nobody has any way to dispute that 2020 has been an unprecedented year thus far.

Who would have ever imagined that we would ever have a time where we would be forbidden from dining in at restaurants? Well, like it or not-here we are! So, let’s do our best to be as positive as we can.

With the COVID-19/Coronavirus crisis gripping the world and causing ways of life to be completely decimated in weeks, countless businesses have been impacted during this time. However, it’s hard to argue that many industries have been harder hit than the restaurant industry. Now, while we’re not health experts-we are business experts, and restaurant industry experts, so let us tell you that the easiest way to describe the restaurant industry’s impact on the world’s economy is this: IT’S HUGE!

For example, in The United States of America alone, as of January 2020, it’s estimated that more than 10% of the entire country’s workforce is comprised of restaurant industry workers, meaning that over 15 MILLION PEOPLE WORK IN THE RESTAURANT INDUSTRY! 

Also, there are more than 1 MILLION RESTAURANTS IN THE USA. Oh, and if you like numbers, you might like to know that The Restaurant Industry contributes over $850 BILLION to the US Economy each year.

Now, think about how many families are supported by the restaurant industry and you might just start to feel a little bit sick to your stomach.

So, when you think about it, not only will there be millions of lives impacted-but there will be devastating impacts for the economy-if we allow our restaurants to go out of business en masse.

Now, what can you do to help? Well, obviously support the restaurants that ARE operating in any way you can, until things return back to normal. More than that, though, help these restaurants find a great resource right now that will provide them with great marketing to spread the word about their carryout/delivery efforts AND help them get an innovative contactless payment solution right now. How can you do this? TELL YOUR RESTAURANT OWNER FRIENDS TO CONTACT FANTASKEY NOW & START ADVERTISING THEIR RESTAURANT ON OUR PLATFORM!

Stay hungry, and #UnlockYourFantasies!

Chicken Wings From Ace Eat Serve

Wing Wednesday: “Tiger Wings” From Ace Eat Serve in Denver, Colorado!

Debates rage constantly over what restaurant serves “The BEST Chicken Wings,” so we won’t even attempt to enter those dangerous waters right now.

However, we will tell you that wing lovers far and wide will probably enjoy the delectably crispy “Tiger Wings” from Ace Eat Serve, located in Denver, Colorado.

We know what you’re thinking…and no, the “Tiger Wings” obviously are not made from actual tiger whatsoever; they’re chicken wings coated in Ace Eat Serve’s proprietary, sweet & salty “tiger sauce.” And guess what? You might find Ace Eat Serve’s “tiger wings” to be pretty tasty, especially if they’re really hot and crispy.

Created by legendary Denver restaurateur Josh Wolkon’s Secret Sauce Restaurant Group-the team behind other Mile High City favorites, Steuben’s and Vesta-Ace Eat Serve is a unique place that all sorts of different people might feel comfortable in because it’s an extremely interesting hybrid of modern Asian-American eatery, bar, ping-pong hall, and event space, all rolled into one. 

Suffice it to say, you probably haven’t been to many places like Ace Eat Serve…and you certainly haven’t been to many singular places with Ace Eat Serve’s combination of amenities and food quality.

According to their website, Ace Eat Serve is open from 4pm-11pm on weeknights, so you’ll have to dream about these tiger wings all “Wing Wednesday,” until you can snag them for dinner time.

While we’re not currently affiliated with Ace Eat Serve in any capacity, that could change any time because we’re adding new businesses as Fantaskey Partners all the time! 😉

Now, last but certainly not least…Remember, most importantly, when you do visit Ace Eat Serve, tell their team that Fantaskey sent you and that they need to JOIN Fantaskey ASAP if they want to be even more innovative. 😀

Stay hungry!

Chocolate Pancakes vs Regular Pancakes

Chocolate Pancakes vs. Regular Pancakes: Which Do YOU Like Better?

There is no clear winner in the battle of Chocolate Pancakes vs. Regular Pancakes, however you might have a different opinion.

After all, not many people think about pancakes as a versatile food…but really, pancakes are one of the most versatile foods out there.

“How can pancakes be versatile?” If that’s your question, we have an easy answer: Pancakes are a very versatile food because they can easily be flavored in a plethora of different ways, but yet they’re still able to taste good and retain a palatable texture.

Think about it: pancakes can be made with a variety of different flours and ingredients; pancakes can be sweet or savory; pancakes can be filled with fruits or chocolates…or just about anything else; pancakes can be paired with a variety of syrups and toppings; and there are many people worldwide who enjoy some form of “pancake,” even if it goes by a different name.

Sure, the most common pancakes are your “regular” Pancakes, Blueberry Pancakes, and Chocolate Chip Pancakes…but is it hard to take the flavor of pancakes up a notch? It’s not hard at all to flavor pancakes the way you want them because all you need to do is add ingredients you enjoy the taste of.

So, for example…how would someone make an entirely chocolate pancake? Well, there are tons of ways…but some simple ones are to a) add cocoa powder to your standard pancake mix; b) add chocolate syrup or melted dark chocolate; or, c) all of the above…and maybe even add chocolate chunks or chips as well, if you’re feeling extra indulgent. 😉

Now, while most people can agree that all sorts of pancakes can be tasty, we need to know: Do YOU like Regular or Chocolate Pancakes better?

Pea Soup Andersen’s Chocolate Milkshake

The Chocolate Milkshakes Are AMAZING At Famous Pea Soup Andersen’s

When people try to find out what restaurant in California serves the best pea soup, there are many different opinions, but perhaps some of the most famous pea soup in California-and perhaps even some of the most famous Pea Soup in all of America- is served at Pea Soup Andersen’s.

While California’s Famous Pea Soup Andersen’s is a restaurant (with 2 locations) famous for serving-you guessed it-exceptionally delicious pea soup, you should know that lots of other dishes at Pea Soup Andersen’s are pretty tasty as well. One you might find particularly satisfying could be the fried chicken.

Plus, Pea Soup Andersen’s has a massive gift shop area, the menu is quite diverse, and they also serve a wide variety of house-made desserts at Pea Soup Andersen’s.

But really, since they serve a reported total of more than 2 million bowls of Pea Soup EVERY YEAR at Pea Soup Andersen’s…you’ll probably hear plenty about the pea soup elsewhere, so we want to tell you more about the milkshakes right now.

As you can imagine, having both locations situated right near major highways, Pea Soup Andersen’s is always filled with a fair amount of diners, and many times you will have to wait if you want to enjoy a meal at this California staple… but millions of people have made the choice to stop at Pea Soup Andersen’s before, and you might just be the next one to do so-thanks to hearing about Pea Soup Andersen’s on Fantaskey.com of course!

While nearly everyone at Pea Soup Andersen’s may get pea soup, and we’ll report on that scrumptious dish another time, right now it needs to be said that we think just about everyone who likes Chocolate Milkshakes might want to consider trying one of the thick and freshly-made Chocolate Milkshakes from Pea Soup Andersen’s if they happen to visit this famous roadside restaurant.

Both locations of this iconic chain restaurant are massive in size, located in Buellton and Santa Nella respectively, and both locations of Pea Soup Andersen’s do have identical menus that allow travelers and regulars alike to try not only some of the most famous pea soup anywhere, but also lots of other “down home” sorts of dishes that might just hit the spot when you’re traveling. You never know, maybe this will become one of your regular stops for when you are road tripping across California?

So, the next time you want to go try Pea Soup Andersen’s in California and you order up a Chocolate Milkshake-tell Pea Soup Andersen’s you heard about them on Fantaskey and that they need to partner with Fantaskey now! 🙂

Edgewater Public Market Opens-November 2019

Edgewater Public Market’s Grand Opening: November 16th, 2019!

Edgewater Public Market is a tremendous example of an adaptive reuse project which also has the potential to benefit a community significantly. Perhaps for this reason-and also because of the anticipation for some delicious food and local shops-many around the Denver area have sat for months asking, “When will Edgewater Public Market Open?”

Now, those questions have finally been answered. In what could be considered breaking news to many, on November 15th, 2019, the team at Edgewater Public Market announced a November 16th, 2019, grand opening for Edgewater Public Market.

Some Colorado-based powerhouse firms- LCP Development and 8020 Builders, along with Meridian 105 Architects- are the creative forces working behind the scenes to create the 4-building Edgewater Public Market out of a 48,000 square foot dilapidated old King Soopers and the adjoining shopping center.

Now, this modern food hall and retail market will cover a combined space of almost 76,000 square feet, across 4 buildings, when it’s all said and done.

While Colorado seems to love food halls more than most places, people should note that this is not “another Denver food hall,” either, because Edgewater is its own small city. So, while we can’t tell you whether or not the Edgewater Public Market will be a success-everyone involved surely is rooting for this project to succeed.

However, we can tell you what businesses you can expect to be operating at Edgewater Public Marker as of the Novermber 16th, 2019 opening, according to the Edgewater Public Market Website.

Edgewater Public Market’s Food & Drink Options:

ROGER’S BAR
CARNIVORE

LUCKY BIRD
BARBED WIRE REEF
AMETHYST COFFEE
TILFORD’S WOOD FIRED PIZZA
MUGI RAMEN
BARQUENTINE BREWING CO

HAPPY CONES ICE CREAM

Edgewater Public Market’s Retail Options:

HORSESHOE MARKET
VELVET WOLF PUP
VELVET WOLF
ZERO MARKET
FLEUR
ARTISANS THRIVE
DEPEW LIQUOR
MY MAKE STUDIO

So, while those who are hoping to catch the opening for Edgewater Public Market do not have a ton of time to plan ahead-it’s okay, because you can go visit anytime you want now that Edgewater Public Market is open. After all, not only does Edgewater Public Market aim to be “a place for everyone,” but they also appear to be a place that will have operating hours that work for just about everyone also.

Edgewater Public Market Hours:

Open Sunday- Thursday 8am-12am. Open Friday-Saturday 8am-1am

Edgewater Public Market Location: 

5505 W 20th Avenue, Edgewater, CO 80214

Now, remember, even if you can’t go enjoy the Edgewater Public Market Grand Opening on November 16th, 2019…they’re open almost all day, every day, from now on, so head over to Edgewater and check out Edgewater Public Market the next time you get hungry.

19 Restaurants Open On Thanksgiving-2019

19 Chain Restaurants Open On Thanksgiving 2019

In The United States of America, Thanksgiving is one of the most widely celebrated holidays. Foods like turkey and ham, sides like stuffing and sweet potatoes, and other dishes-or “fixins,” as many people may call them-are the things people think about when they think of a Thanksgiving Meal. AND PIE. Lots and lots of pie. But, Thanksgiving also happens to be a day of pure gluttony where a majority of America overeats…which is great for most people, except for when you’re the one having to do all of the cooking and cleaning up for the feast your guests enjoy.

You know-think of your own family’s past Thanksgivings as an example. How many times was the rest of the family eating while also having to tell Mom/Grandma/Aunt Becky, or whoever is cooking, that they need to “sit down and eat your food before it gets cold?” Our guess is you’ve had this exact conversation at many past Thanksgiving celebrations, and for a simple reason-because it is a ton of work preparing, and cleaning up from, a feast for a holiday like Thanksgiving.

Some people thoroughly enjoy the process of shopping for and cooking a large Thanksgiving meal, and they champion it through the “clean up” process, and that is fantastic to know that many people still like doing things a little bit the old fashioned way when it comes to celebrating Thanksgiving…but there’s also nothing wrong with having your Thanksgiving meal prepared for you at a restaurant.

Some people love eating Thanksgiving at restaurants because it presents greater culinary options than you could prepare at home, and-perhaps best of all-eating thanksgiving at a restaurant ensures you’re not going to have to take part in any cleaning up whatsoever!

While it can be a struggle to find restaurants that are open for Holidays like Thanksgiving, there are many places that stay open to help ensure us hungry diners have a place to go enjoy a quality holiday meal.

So, are you asking yourself “What restaurants are serving Thanksgiving meals and/or what chain restaurants are open on Thanksgiving 2019?”

No need to worry any longer, because we have got you covered!

Please see our list below covering many major restaurant chains that are staying open on Thanksgiving.

Juicer (if you own 1, but this can be made by simply rolling the lemons against a hard surface and cutting them in half before squeezing the juice out…ideally using a strainer to catch seeds)

Knife and Cutting Board For Cutting Lemons

Ice Tray/Ice Dispenser

Ingredients:

24 Fresh Lemons

3/4 Gallon Water (Your choice-tap, bottled, whatever you like)

1 Cup of Pure Cane Sugar

1/4 Cup Ice Cubes

Instructions:

After you have washed and sliced your lemons in half to prepare them for juicing, the 1st thing you must do is “juice” 23 of your lemons individually into a separate container.

2nd, fill the pitcher you will use as your drink pitcher with 3/4 Gallon of Water.

3rd, cut your last lemon whole into thin circular slices (approximately 1-2 dozen) and drop these lemon slices into your drink container with water.

4th, pour your freshly squeezed lemon juice into the drink container with water and lemon slices and mix thoroughly.

5th, add your 1 cup of pure cane sugar to your homemade lemonade mixture and mix everything again very well.

6th and last step, add your 1/4 cup ice cubes to your homemade lemonade, stir once more, and then the beverage will be ready to drink once it has cooled to a temperature you will enjoy!

PRO TIP-You can add more lemons if you want a stronger and more “lemony” beverage, and you can also adjust the sugar ratio accordingly based on how sweet you like your lemonade, plus add more water and/or ice if you want to tone down the lemon tartness without adding sugar or reducing the number of lemons.

Now, go tell your friends about your super easy homemade lemonade recipe from Fantaskey.com.

 The New York City-born burger phenomenon more commonly known as Shake Shack still stands out, no matter who the competition is, and Shake Shack Hudson Yards is no different because it’s just frankly pretty hard to beat the combination of quality, quantity, service, and price that Shake Shack can offer when it comes to the things they do well: burgers, fries, shakes, and a few other select items.
Union Square Hospitality Group Founder and CEO Danny Meyer had already transformed New York City’s dining scene long before Shake Shack came along, even though Mr. Meyer probably will be the first to tell you that he doesn’t really mind if you know him more for Shake Shack than for his other work.

NOW, next time you go to a restaurant in Hudson Yards (or anywhere else) tell them they need to start selling on Fantaskey, because Fantaskey sent you! 😀

One last and very important thing you must note is that, as of the November 2019, none of these restaurants are affiliated with us at all and none of them offer Reservations or Meal Deal Experiences through Fantaskey or are Fantaskey Partner Businesses-YET-however we hope this will change soon and we’ll update this list when the best new restaurants in Hudson Yards (and elsewhere) start offering reservations and more through Fantaskey. 😉

We hope you have enjoyed this detailed listing about every single one of the amazing Hudson Yards Restaurants, and please let us know if any updates need to be made to this post at any time.

ENJOY! 😀

Guy Fieri’s “Trash Can Nachos,” Las Vegas

Guy Fieri’s “Trash Can Nachos” From Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar

Of course, it goes without saying that you know who Guy Fieri is…because anyone who is interested in food has seen the charismatic television host and celebrity chef dominating the airwaves over at the Food Network for the last decade or more.

However, for whatever reasons, some “chefs” decide that Guy is not “one of them,” but guess what? We’ve been to a restaurant to prove once and for all that Guy Fieri is, indeed, probably a better chef than you and he (and his team) are also probably more talented than your favorite chef as well…so start being nicer to the big guy now, won’t you? 😉 Do not be jealous because Guy Fieri has a hit TV Show and you don’t!

Anyway, whether it is National Nacho Day or any other day, you can trust that that you will get flavors that are far from trashy when you taste Guy Fieri’s “Trash Can Nachos!”

Don’t let the name deceive you, because “Trash Can Nachos” does not mean you should expect trashy ingredients when it comes to the quality of the veggies, cheese, chips and meats in these controversial and scrumptious nachos. Plus, just like the picture shows you-these are good sized, so you can get a decent amount of food even if you are sharing among a group of 2-3 people or more….but you probably won’t want to share!

For those who are looking to try Trash Can Nachos for themselves, they can be found at Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar– inside The Linq on The World-Famous Las Vegas Strip- located at 3535 Las Vegas Blvd South, Las Vegas, NV 89109.

When you go try Trash Can Nachos for yourself, tell the team at Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar that Fantaskey sent you! 😀
